Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump battled it out last night at the first presidential debate. It was … fine? I guess? There are two more of these before our national nightmare season is over. And while political outlets will be making calls about which candidate won the night, here at Select All we’ll be focusing on what really matters: the cyber. So without further ado, here are the winning tweets from last night’s show. (Sorry, from last night’s debate.)

First, an introduction to our two candidates. Here’s Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton.

And Republican nominee Donald Trump, who appeared to be suffering from a cold.

And in case you were missing him, here’s what Bernie Sanders was up to last night.

Now, let’s get into the issues. Here’s Hillary Clinton on the importance of the drapery industry.

And Donald Trump’s feelings about cybersecurity and the mysterious 400-pound hacker threatening the nation from his bed.

Trump demanded credit for not saying “something bad.”

Special shout-out to NBC’s Lester Holt for moderating the evening’s proceedings. Or at the very least, for sitting through them.

During the debate, Hillary Clinton’s campaign devoted her website to fact-checking Donald Trump. Donald Trump’s campaign, um, did not.

And then, after just 90 short minutes of commercial-free fun, it was time to pack it up and go home.

Just in case you need a quick recap, here’s the whole hour and a half in one tweet.

And the winner?
